I got a Sparco bar from Rod Millen last year and powder coated it silver. Looks awesome and really settles down the front end in the corners, a great mod and cheap too!

I have ST sways with all the reinforcements and adjustable links too. Man, it's WAY stiffer than with the stock bars, pretty uncomfortable actually. I had 'em both set on medium at first and the handling is absolutely amazing, but don't hit a bump or your kidneys will fall out. I have them set on soft now and it's a little more comfortable, but not quite as good in the corners - of course still way better than stock.

I'm not sure what to do. Now my car is a little too uncomfortable for every day driving. I think I need to buy another car and drive the M3 less. Besides, my miles are getting up there and I can't afford an engine right now. I need to slow down the mileage accumulation...

I was the first car to arrive a little after 11:AM. Beautiful day down there on the beach. I brought my 3 year old daughter and we played in the sand until the SD crew showed up around noon. Cars there: A few A4's including a nice silver S4, one E39 M5, a white E46 with some nice MVR wheels on it, a low, low Dakar Yellow E36 M3 with nice 18" Hamman's (and a real bad sounding exhaust - sorry if the owner's reading this!). And just before I left another E36 M3 showed up with some awesome full polished Kinesis K28's - damn those are the wheels I want! Anyway, we sure could have used a few more E30 M3s there! I didn't go on to the car show afterwards as I took off from work on Thursday to go - the crowds there are just too crazy on the weekends.

I was planning on going but at the last minute decided not to because it was the only time I could finally install my strut brace and sway bars. I will try to make it to the next meeting.

Yeah I got the ST swaybars,with reinforced and welded mounts. The car is totally different, the damn thing feels like it's riding on rails now. The ride is harsher and a bit noisy but the handling is wonderful. I have a spare Sparco strut brace...interested?
